In this lesson, students will practice calculating mean absolute deviations and increase their conceptual understanding of how the MAD is related to data distribution by comparing dot plots of multiple samples. This lesson uses the problem of invasive species as an engaging situation for statistical analysis.

This lesson can be used after students have experienced an original student tutorial found at floridastudents.org that would help review the concepts.
